ALBANY, New York — Nine Pin Cider Works, New York’s first farm cidery, has announced the release of its winter seasonal cider in its specialty can series: Earl Grey, a continuing collaboration with Guilderland, N.Y.-based Short and Stout Tea Co.
Earl Grey is bright and floral. Its mango-like notes will take the cider enthusiast on a tropical getaway, despite the frigid temperatures outdoors.
“Dramatic dark skies and swirling snow make Upstate New York great in winter. Complaining about winter is a waste of time. Instead, when it gets cold and cloudy, we recommend you crack open a can of Nine Pin Earl Grey Cider, and embrace the grey,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cider maker.
Earl Grey is crafted with 100 percent New York apples, cold infused with earl grey tea, and aged on lemon peel. The floral nature of the beverage is reminiscent of a fine spring day. Earl Grey Cider is an ideal companion for any winter adventure or surviving until the first blooms of spring.
“Short and Stout Tea is all about pushing boundaries on different ways to enjoy tea. We are happy to work with Nine Pin year after year, so people can further enjoy this versatile ingredient,” said Matt Zacharewicz, co-owner, Short and Stout Tea Co.
In addition to Nine Pin’s tasting room in Albany’s Warehouse District, Earl Grey 12 oz. cans will be available at bars, restaurants, and retailers proudly carrying Nine Pin products.
